Now, with Facebook pages and forums dedicated specifically to military spouse support, it's easy to get instantaneous feedback.

Who cares that UGA lost the SEC championship?

In case you have been vacationing on the moon, you may have missed the news that the student-athletes from the University of Georgia, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation, located in Athens, the Classic City of the South, came up a wee bit short in attaining the football championship of the Southeastern Conference. That honor went to the young men of Louisiana State University, who, having observed them in post-game interviews, are destined to become either, you know, great orators or, you know, quantum physicists.

Is the United States ready for another war?

An International Atomic Energy Agency report says that Iran is a major nuclear threat. The IAEA shared satellite images, letters and diagrams with 35 nations to support its claim.

Shariah law is exploiting the U.S. constitution

For more than 235 years, we have depended on the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as the foundation of our judicial system. This system is being eroded by courts that are now making their own laws and throwing out the laws passed by our elected officials. The latest trend in the courts is to follow Shariah, which is Islamic law, and international laws that have nothing to do with this country.
